Surge Network’s Standard Return Policy represents the number of days/years that Surge Networks will honor returns based on equipment defect or failure and may differ from certain OEM standard restrictions, where applicable.
Warranty coverage is for normal use and does not include damage due to improper handling, Acts of God, or War. We will only accept returns for cosmetic issues when identified within 48 hours of receipt. The length of warranty is determined by the sales representative for your account, based on negotiated rates and terms of your individual transaction. Please reference the warranty field on your invoice for the length of coverage.
Surge Networks warranty covers standard OEM warranty on NBD equipment delivery, when applicable and as defined by the applicable OEM, and does NOT represent IOS support coverage (such as Cisco Smartnet), unless otherwise expressly written within your sales invoice/transaction.
RMA Policy Categories:
- Working/Excess—This product is divided into two sub-categories, New or Authorized-Refurbished. Both conditions require that the equipment be in the original condition in which it arrived to the customer site. For example, all NEW equipment must be unopened, unused and can be resold as new. Products must be in resalable condition (without price tags, clean, undamaged, unused, unopened and complete in the original manufacturer packaging. All products deemed not in “Net-NEW” condition will be returned to customers at their expense. All refurbished items must be in the original packaging, include all accessories and manuals, where applicable, and must be free from any cosmetic damage. These returns are subject to a 20% restocking fee.
- Defective—A “defective” status is determined when a product has either failed to operate or is dead on arrival (D.O.A.), or the equipment has stopped working while in a production environment. Ordering a wrong part number or incompatible product to an already purchased item does NOT qualify as Defective or D.O.A. A “Defective” status can potentially occur in equipment hardware at various times during its lifecycle. In the event that your equipment becomes defective, please follow the “Keys to Warranty Policy” below to ensure that your RMA is expedited. Surge Networks reserves the right to test defective and D.O.A products. Upon completion of this test, if they are determined NOT to be defective or D.O.A., then Surge Networks, with sole discretion, may deny any refund or replacement requested. Any product deemed not defective or D.O.A. will be returned to customers at their expense.
